Black is the colour of choice for many women of all ages and is often the colour of choice for both day and evening, with good reason –and it goes with most other colours in your wardrobe. Oh, and black is always on trend and is always incredibly stylish. It’s the most popular colour for our label, so we educate our clients on how to style black.

Black is considered highly sophisticated, edgy, and fun, and it can be slimming and flattering but can be ageing if not styled correctly.
A usual misconstruction is that black is always a slimming colour, which is not always true. Any ill-fitting items can become more distinct, even in black.
Post Peri-Menopause and Menopause, many body shapes and colours change, so black can often make you appear washed out and create dark shadows under your eyes and around your mouth when wearing black. To avoid this draining effect, wear a scooped or v-line neckline, add colour contrast, and add some chunky jewellery or a favourite scarf to create colour and movement around your face.

Monochromatic outfits are one of the most impactful ways to stand out in the fashion world as they give you an elongated look - creating a single, unbroken line that both elongates and polishes, creating even more of an illusion of height for almost anybody. Dressing monochromatically also captures the power of color.
I love to style a monochromatic style in black from head to toe to create an illusion of a long, lean line. I have fun and play around with different textures and accessories.

Adding texture to your outfit adds definition to your black style. Mixing fabrics such as velvet, faux fur, faux leather, and satin create a chic style, making your casual or event look more interesting. Adding contrast with exciting accessories will elevate your look, as they are the icing on the cake.
